Understanding that what you are experiencing in your grief is normal can be an important part in healing. Friends and family may not know what to say, and in their desire to see you stop hurting, they may tell you that it's time to get over it and move on. With me, you will find that wherever you are in your grief process is accepted. While I will help you process your feelings so you may heal, I will not hurry you along faster than you are ready to go. I will never have the expectation that you will "get over" your loved one. Instead, I will help you to redefine your life without that person in it so that you can experience joy again.

We in the Western world have a difficult time with death and loss. And yet they are unavoidable realities. Often loss is experienced with the death of a loved one, but grief is also experienced through relationship conflicts, chronic illness, addictions, divorce, the loss of a job or even the death of a long held dream. Grief cannot be rushed or it will continue much longer than if that process is fully accepted. Grief therapy is some of the most significant you will ever do and is often filled with revelations, healing, as well as moments of laughter.

I have advanced training and experience in helping people deal with traumatic loss and grief including loss through suicide, accident or needing to put a pet to sleep. My approach helps you reduce disturbing images and bad dreams related to the loss, reduce feelings of guilt, reduce a sense of hopelessness about your future, and reconnect to happy images and memories of the person or pet you lost. I have also helped people with job loss and relationship endings. I also incorporate a six step model for accommodating loss and EMDR Therapy to help reduce the pain of the grief process.

My belief is that grief is a normal response to loss. Initially, it can be very intense and seemingly constant. Then it starts to subside and we experience waves of grief intermingled with our more typical daily experiences. However, sometimes the intensity remains. Rather than grief seeming to move, we seem stuck in the depth of pain. By using a combination of conventional talk therapy along with Emotional Freedom Technique (Energy Psychology), I can help you to unblock the stuck feelings and begin to see the joy in life again.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

If you can grieve well, you can live well. Loss is a normal part of life, so learning to grieve loss should be a normal part of life as well. If you struggle with grief and loss, I can help. More than likely, you feel “stuck” in your grief. You probably are. I believe getting stuck happens because our culture doesn’t value grieving. It actually teaches us to “move on.” You should be able to move on. The trick is how. I can help you navigate your grief in a way that will move you thorough it. The approach I use can also be used with any other troubling emotions. Contact me today for help with your grief. You don’t have to remain stuck any longer.
